IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LIAM HASTINGS, Individually and
as Parent and Next Friend of NICOLAS
HASTINGS and SYDNEY HASTINGS, both
Minors; and TRENTON HASTINGS,
Case No. 4:19-cv-4067
FCA US LLC f/k/a/ CHRYSLER

f/k/a/ DAIMLER CHRYSLER f/k/a
CHRYSLER CORPORATION; LONNIE
MCCURRY’S FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVECENTER, INC. d/b/a SKYJACKER
SUSPENSION, INC.; and QUADRATEC, INC.
Before the Court is Defendant Quadratec, Inc.’s Motion to Dismiss With Prejudice. (ECF
No. 127). No response is necessary.
The parties have settled all issues in this case. Accordingly, Defendant Quadratec, Inc.
asks to dismiss with prejudice its crossclaims against Defendants FCA US LLC and Lonnie
McCurry’s Four-Wheel-Drive-Center, Inc. An action or claim may be dismissed by court order,
on terms the Court considers proper. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2). “Voluntary dismissal under Rule
41(a)(2) should not be granted if a party will be prejudiced by the dismissal.” Adams v. USAA
Cas. Ins. Co., 863 F.3d 1069, 1079 (8th Cir. 2017).
Good cause exists for the motion, as the Court sees no reason why the parties would be
prejudiced by the dismissal of Defendant Quadratec, Inc.’s crossclaims. Accordingly, the instant
motion (ECF No. 127) is hereby GRANTED. Defendant Quadratec, Inc.’s crossclaims against
Defendants FCA US LLC and Lonnie McCurry’s Four-Wheel-Drive-Center, Inc. are hereby
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. Plaintiffs have not yet moved to dismiss their claims against
Defendants pursuant to the parties’ settlement agreement, so those claims remain pending.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 9th day of May, 2022.
